Under the artistic direction of Viktoria Titova, Emerald Ballet Theatre's spring production on May 19 and 20 at the Northshore Performing Arts Center features two classic ballets in one performance.
Act I is the delightful Peter and the Wolf, based on the charming Russian children's tale set to Prokofiev's score. Talented musicians provide live music during the educational introduction called Meet the Musicians. Act II is Les Sylphides, a gorgeous romantic reverie with choreography by Fokine and music by Chopin.
Both matinee performances provide a wonderful introduction to dance and live music. Tickets range from $16.50-$29.99. Festival seating, except for donors at the Corps de Ballet level and above.
